New bebo upgrades announced

AOL continues to upgrade the Bebo social network it bought in 2008, layering in more functionality from the social data aggregator SocialThing it also acquired that year.

In December, we covered Bebo’s new Social Inbox, which gathers social updates from your friends on other services and shows them on your Bebo home page. There’s also a new feature, Lifestream, which will collect data from the Bebo user’s external sites and put them all into one data stream that any Bebo friend can see. This feature is reminiscent of the social network aggregation function in FriendFeed.

AOL on Monday is announcing several more enhancements to the Bebo service, although not all of them will be available to users immediately.
